Esu, chat? I have issues with sexual attitudes I perceive and with my seeming lack of association with political concerns. I feel separate and view situations from a different perspective. I feel you don’t disagree or you would have made me be more conflicted.
Yes, Jess, I’m here. You have been working through your own perceptions on many issues that you will be dealing with, quite frankly. I haven’t felt the need to interject in this process. I have trusted you to reach the most appropriate positions on these issues. We have observed your thought processes, and we have steered your ideas as appropriate.
I can say things, but I think you know what I will say. Your perception is one of more compassion than most tackling the issues. You are on the “other side,” as it were, and you see issues differently. This was the purpose of you constructing this incarnation. You saw the issues with gay men as a most crucial problem to work with, and you put yourself within the issues to be able to understand their intuitive nature. This lifestyle, as it is called, is by and large not a rational choice. It is a deep seated compulsion that has unfortunately manifested itself in physically disruptive forms.
I’m not going to say these choices were good or bad. I’m going to say they were less supportive of the physical design you were given to manifest your spiritual nature in this dimension. It comes down to decisions that ultimately are damaging to an individual.
I’m also not going to say that the most damaging decisions are universal. They also are not made by men uniquely in the gay spectrum. Nor are they as little understood as they were thirty years ago. So much research and understanding has been inspired by the AIDS breakout that man has raised his level of sensibility in many areas. Man has moved to a different place in terms of his understanding of the enormous field of sexuality and cultural perceptions of the function of sex. Historical attitudes have been examined. Spiritual merging with physical actions has become a common attitude in many. The nature of sexual understanding is more complex now.
I have told you that I don’t want to draw up a new list of prohibitions—even if actions create problems. I want to teach that there are better choices. I want to love the individuals and tell them that there are more spiritual ways to reach a higher level of awareness. I don’t want to condemn them and make them feel they are less than equal to anyone else just because they have become conditioned to a less than optimal set of behaviors. I’m not throwing the baby out with the bathwater, to use that phrase again.
You have lost patience with the time table for change. You feel the best thing to do is continue with the work you are involved with. You do have subliminal influence on those around you, even so. This is best for you at this point. You can’t honestly drop all your activities that are in motion. We are working on our plan. It is immense, and you don’t understand the levels of detail we must accomplish. The calendar seasons and fast-moving days are only in your perception, you must realize. We measure our accomplishments in terms of results, not days we have left. I know this is not a consolation, but it is an explanation.
I say don’t worry about politics. I understand your frustration with insensitivity and a refusal to view a broader perception of problems. Ego is a factor in most controlling decisions. The chaos is coming to the surface, and I would suggest watching the situations with detachment and even bemusement at the extent of people’s willingness to give up control. People have been taught not to think; only react emotionally. Their emotions have been manipulated, and people have crafted ideas they don’t understand are programmed into them.
I’ll speak also of anger. I know you feel constant criticism only feeds the anger towards some issue. Belittling the object of criticism is a common practice. There is a sense of power and superiority in finding fault with another. Ego concerns are placated by feeling better than someone else. The physical and emotional reactions a person goes through in the act of criticism are addictive. They allow a person to transfer personal responsibility to someone they can blame for their lack of satisfaction.
People are not to blame for your discomfort. You are the responsible one. You allow yourself to be open to issues that you know will pull certain triggers. Rather than calmly teaching a better way of being aligned with the creative concept and allowing all to work together on spiritual progress, most people ignore their own role in this dialogue and blame others for being the cause of discomfort.
It is very possible that the other person’s decisions were made with no intention of harming you. You are affected only because you haven’t resolved personal issues that are irritated by other’s actions. Piling on fault is not a way to resolve your own problems.
Defuse these situations. Don’t exacerbate them.
This advice is particularly appropriate when you are faced with situations that have developed into serious imbalances. Gay issues are troublesome, but you can’t approach them by feeling superior and condemning those caught up in that lifestyle. You are not better than they. You are more aware, in some cases. You should not presume you know all, nor should you presume you can judge. Your work will be helping by being supportive and compassionate. You will not be judgmental and elitist. You must understand any situation before you address it. And you must have an open mind to be able to recognize the good elements within situations that are hopelessly imbalanced. There is good in all. This is Christ Michael’s Aton’s creation. He is in control. He has not allowed others to create evil within it, even if the attacks by some have manifested the negativity to such an extent there is now a war going on to wrest control.
Man still has the ability to make choices within this incarnation on Earth, although his choices have been hampered by the decision to remove direct connection with spiritual sources. The glimmer of Christ Michael’s nature that has remained within individuals is easily ignored and misinterpreted. This myopia has caused the degree of darkness that has had to be lifted. This is being done. Light is stronger each day in terms of spiritual awareness. The physical manifestation the dark has created, however, is uniquely challenging to overcome. It will not win, but it is a difficult adversary. Man learns as he experiences. We learn as man experiences.
The end result is already determined. There is no chance of failure. The only unresolved issues that remain determine the direction the progression moves toward the predetermined goal. Man continues to create ideas, and we must work with the ever-changing shape of manifested creation. Progress is made continually, even if you don’t recognize the accomplishments.
My final advice is to seek balance and compassion. Avoid being manipulated by others—whether by other’s ideas or by their direct actions. Defuse situations and teach alternatives by example or by actual teaching. The time is coming when this will be the norm, rather than the exception. I will be guiding you in this transformation.
